Today, as in true Gbenga ArtSmith fashion, the jeweler has chosen two gorgeous ladies as his muses for this revamp/makeover themed photoshoot. It features Ghanaian actress/TV personality, Sika Osei and a BellaNaija Weddings Bride from 2011, Atinuke Solanke (nee Osude). Here’s what Gbenga told us;

We revamped Atinuke’s traditional wedding look and did a makeover for Sika, making the Ghanaian beauty her the perfect Yoruba bride.

      What fight? Mssschew….Nigerians give credence to all these countries by responding to them. I know we ain’t shit but biko Kenya for where?
      Funniest part is that they will now come on Nigerian blogs to comment…?? abeg someone point me to a Kenyan blog so I can go and fight there….wait, what? Crickets….yup.

    Bella Naija loves fun but thr won’t engage in that.
    BN fans are not just from Nigeria.
    Allow other blogs to carry that.
    Let BN remain classy.
